Firefighters in Cambridgeshire have shared this photograph of a fire engine blocked from driving down a road in Huntingdon because of inconsiderate parking.

The crew was not on an emergency call - meaning no lives were put at risk this time - but it hopes the worrying image will make people think more carefully about how they leave their cars.

"Luckily, they were on access checks and not a 999 call - but if it had been an emergency call it would have added another five minutes to a time-critical incident. Please think about how you park when leaving your car on the streets of Huntingdon."

The photo was taking on American Lane in the town on Friday morning.

Hinchingbrooke Hospital has warned it is having "serious issues'" with demand for its accident and emergency department.

The hospital, in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, is asking people not to go A&E unless they have life-threatening symptoms.

Bosses say acute admissions have rocketed, and are much higher than would be expected for this time of year.

They say overcrowding has been made worse by staff sickness and a slower discharge time for patients.

Anyone with a non-life threatening condition are advised to visit their GP or pharmacy instead.
